    I never saw ELP , but their debut album is excellent and remains one of my favorite Prog/rock albums of all time. I know some people accuse them of excess and overindulgence musically, but that is what I love about prog in general,,,taking chances stretching the boundaries, some epic failures of course, but some timeless classic albums to enjoy as well.

    ELP is on my top 5 list of great prog bands. I dont care for much after 1978, Brain Salad Surgery was the last album worth while to me.

    I would recommend the Debut and Tarkus to anyone. Emmerson is a fantastic keyboardist, he rivals Wakeman.

    I think the most disappointing "Serious" recording ELP did was Pictures at an Exhibition, the orchestral version is Light Years better. Love Beach would be the worst album they ever released.

    If there is one suite of music that I think exemplifies Emerson, lake and palmer ,it is Tarkus. The form and structure of it is akin to classical music. This is here where the band displayed they were a legitimate band , not a showcase for soloing.
    However, the best version would be off the live `74 Welcome Back my friends.. Aquatarkus is awesome and a mindblower!

    Definitely a mind blower, Stout !!

    Aquatarkus live from Welcome Back My Friends

    I have to be in a certain mind set to listen to this stuff, though. I can listen to this when I am in a really funky, quiet mood and just want to sit alone and not be pestered.

    Don't mind me a bit of ELP, starting to get into them now. Karn Evil 9 is already a favourite! :D

    Nice to see some fans of ELP show up. I like the debut the best, but Tarkus, Brain Salad Surgery and Trilogy are essential to any fans library. I even enjoyed their live album recorded in Montreal's Olympic stadium with full orchestra.
